Wednesday Flights - Castel Noarna, Naturally Made Wines from Trento
Castel Noarna is a family owned organic winery in Trento region of northern Italy. Housed in a castle that was built between the 11th and 16th century, this noble property sits high on a hillside with a commanding view of the town of Noarna. Marco and Susana Zani currently own the property and surround vineyards bought by Marco's father in the 1970's. They have partially restored the castle, and the entire production takes place within the walls of this ancient piece of history. Producing their wines from local and international varieties with native yeasts and minimal added sulfites - they have a freshness and purity not always achieved by naturally made wines. We visited the property earlier this summer, learning the history of the castle, its surroundings and Marco’s journey from conventional wine production to his current, very thoughtful approach to natural wine. We'll taste his Pet Nat, Metodo Classico sparkling, Noisiola and Teroldego, all unique expressions of the region and it's terroir. Cheese monger Casey Foote will select and present a cheese pairing plate ($12 with flight, $18 without the flight). No standing in line for our Wednesday flights - you sit at a table, we come to you and pour tableside complete with lots of educational info on what you are drinking. The flight of 4 wines is $20 - reservations are highly recommended as we can only seat walk-ins if space allows. All wines and cheeses are available for purchase to have at Swirl or you can take them to go. Class Policies:-As with all of our tastings and classes we ask that you not wear perfume, cologne or any other strong scents that could interfere with the wine's aromas for you and those around you.-Refunds can be made with a minimum 3 days advance notice. Credit cannot be given towards future classes.
